NEWS BRIEFS: Alumni Golf Outing Draws Nearly 100 Golfers
Alumni Golf Outing Raises More Than $2,500: Those who attended last weekend's DHS alumni golf gathering enjoyed a hot but enjoyable day catching up with old schoolmates and childhood friends. Several alumni from out of state attended, as nearly 100 DHS alumni took part in the event. Early estimates show that more than $2,500 was raised for DHS athletics, while a similar amount went to the Friend Country Club. Several former Longhorns also caught up in downtown Dorchester later Saturday evening.
Home Break-In Reported Friday Evening: At least one Dorchester home was broken into and burglarized the evening of Friday, May 30. According to reports, the break-in occurred on the far east end of town on Fulton Street. Details are still being gathered. Neighbors are encouraged to report all suspicious activity to the Saline County Sheriff's Department at (402) 821-2111.
Bulldozer Coming To Town?: The Times has received word that at least one neglected property -- apparently on 9th Street -- is likely to be razed soon. According to our sources, following multiple clean-up notices from the village, the owners have failed to make the necessary repairs, and the property has now become a safety hazard. It appears that as soon the courts give the OK, the property will come down with the help of a third party -- and their heavy equipment. Stay tuned.
